Retirement Benefits for Members of Congress
Congressional Research Service
Likewise, the Member’s age and years of service, as
well as the starting date of the annuity, will
determine whether he or she is eligible for a full pension or a reduced pension.
Retirement Under CSRS
Four retirement scenarios are possible for Member
s covered by CSRS or the CSRS Offset Plan.
Retirement with an immediate, full pension
is available to Members aged 60 or older with
10 years of service in Congress, or aged 62 with five years of civilian federal service,
including service in Congress.
Retirement with an immediate, reduced pension
is available to Members aged 55 to 59 with
at least 30 years of service. It is also allowed if the Member separates for a reason other than
resignation or expulsion after having completed 25 years of service, or after reaching the age
of 50 and with 20 years of service, or after having served in nine Congresses.
Retirement with a deferred, full pension
is available if the Member leaves Congress before
reaching the minimum age required to receive an immediate, unreduced pension and delays
receipt until reaching the age at which full benefits are paid. A full pension can be taken at the
age of 62 if the Member had five through nine years of federal service, or at the age of 60 if
the Member had at least 10 years of service in Congress. At the time of separation, the
Member must leave all contributions in the plan to be eligible for the deferred pension.
Retirement with a deferred, reduced pension
is available to a Member at the age of 50 if he
or she retired before that age and had at least 20 years of federal service, including at least 10
years as a Member of Congress.
That would be from 50-85% that don't need what they are getting. I know a man & wife on SS - free phone - 200.00 per month on electric bill, lunch at .50 each, new home, with several K's in the bank.
Obama plays the poor and simple for votes but Buffett, Sorros, Oprah, Bill Gates, & Hollywood are his pals.
Putin has went into his fradie hole until Obama stops scaring him, as soon as he gets all of the USSR put under his control. But he is scared of sanctions.
That is what this is about, get away from Lois L talk about something else. She should already be in jail.
"Now, Mizzou, I just have two words for you tonight: five days. Five days. After decades of broken politics in Washington, and eight years of failed policies from George W. Bush, and 21 months of a campaign that's taken us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of California, we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.
"In five days, you can turn the page on policies that put greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street. In five days, you can choose policies that invest in our middle class, and create new jobs, and grow this economy, so that everyone has a chance to succeed, not just the CEO, but the secretary and janitor, not just the factory owner, but the men and women on the factory floor."
5 years later ???????????????? jobs, division, no trust in government, welfare & foodstamps near double. US debt double , got rid of one bad egg & got a worse one.
My guess not one employee including the supervisor can explain how this can happen. If they tried they would be demoted or fired.
The count goes from 91.6 down to 4.2 google this at (World Murder Statistics)
The United States 4.2 !!!!!!!!!!!!
ALL the countries (109) above America have 100% gun bans.
It might be of interest to note that
SWITZERLAND (not shown on this list)
has NO MURDER OCCURRENCE!
However, SWITZERLAND'S law requires that EVERYONE....
1. Own a Gun
2. Maintain Marksman qualifications....regularly
3. "Carry"........a Weapon.
Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper, Prager Zeitungon .
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President.”
Russia / USSR will be kicking and controlling Europe & north Atlantic ocean, China will be pushing everyone from the Indian Ocean to North Pacific including the USA. While the USA disarms and talks about sexual preference - women rights - inequality-global warming.
